Vanila Hotel and Spa
is located on the island of Nosy Be
in the Northern
region of Madagascar
Set on a relatively quiet beach on the western side of the island of Nosy Be, this mid-range place is one of the more characterful of the larger resorts on the island.
The lodge is centred on a large main building with lounge and dining areas leading out to a collection of swimming pools. There is also a substantial spa.
Guest accommodation is in around 150 rooms, most contained within very large two story blocks, plus some lower cost options in a single storey area to the rear.
Activities include diving, snorkelling, sailing and motorboat trips to other islands, as well as exploring the island of Nosy Be itself.
The main potential downsides at Vanila Hotel and Spa are the presence of significant mass market tourism on the island, the enormous size and mainstream feel of the lodge itself and the relatively disappointing beach.
